This is a memoir and biography by an extraordinary woman about her father, a pioneer in the field of Jewish history as well as a leading political activist among East European Jews during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The book chronicles Dubnov's personal, professional, and ideological development during a period of intense change for the Jews of the Russian Empire, from the Haskalah to the first years of World War II.
